DYNOmite systems are modular in nature, so these specifications cover only a few possible configurations. Individual "Quick-Specs" sheets for many prepackaged combinations, are available (below) as separate PDF documents. Call for individual specifications on your custom combination.

“For details on accessories, data acquisition, options, software, etc., see related links - or call for more information!”

Engine Tachometer:

0 - 32,000+ RPM display
Optional LCD display
Quartz-crystal calibrated
RPM pulse type is selectable from ½ to 12 pulses per revolution
Optional magnetic absorber pickup available
Optional clamp-on inductive pickup

CNC machined from billet aircraft aluminum
Dual heavy-duty sealed bearings
Stainless-steel, heat-treated arbor shaft
Adjustable load characteristics
External Zerk grease fittings
Optional “auto-lube” kit

Optional Small Engine Test Stand:

Professional – roll-formed steel frame (wheeled)
Removable stand (or wall) mount console
Vibration-isolation mounts
Battery compartment
Universal throttle
Semi-universal engine mounting plate
Optional overhead “sky-hook” boom

Control Console Options:

“Pro” console – option includes:
billet-aluminum throttle, mechanical cable, auxiliary analog gauges, 17" LCD monitor, Dell™ with Intel® PC, and wiring harness
Subsystem (with integral control relays)

weight – 500 lbs

Data Collection Options:

Airflow turbines 3", 4", and 6"
Air/fuel ratio (calculated)
Air temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure weather station
AFR (air/fuel ratio) exhaust-gas meter interface (with pump)
Brake-specific air consumption (calculated BSAC)
Brake-specific fuel consumption (calculated BSFC)
DYNO-MAX software
Engine-temperature thermistors
Exhaust-gas temperature thermocouple kits (EGT)

*Absorber capacities are RPM dependent. Air-cooled absorber loads are rotor temperature dependant. Water brakes require a minimum water flow of 1 gpm @ 30 to 60 psi for every 20 continuous Hp.
